Far Cry 6 (2021) is the sixth in the series of shooting games. Set on a fictional Caribbean island ruled as a dictatorship, you are guerrilla fighter Dani Rojas aiming to topple the regime. You explore the world and work to liberate the people you find - with crafting, covert action and (most commonly) guns.
The Far Cry series of games are all individual stories but follow a very similar plot and gameplay formula. With the use of a map of the open-world play area, you must liberate the land with the help of the local resistance. Attack and capture enemy strongholds, find radio towers, and caches of weapons and equipment and craft upgrades for same. Use abandoned vehicles (or in this game, horses) to travel long distances. Another feature of the games is the use of animals as weapons, known here as "Amigos". In Far Cry 6 you can befriend and use 7 different animals, including an alligator and a fighting rooster. There are also drug-related sequences in the games which work as vision quests or hallucinations that distort your view of the world and reveal secrets. You follow a story with main missions to complete, as well as side missions that are optional.

Far Cry games are open-world and with a focus on realism, which is generally super violent. This extends beyond the impressive visuals, sound and scope of the environments to how the characters interact with you and respond to your actions. Since Far Cry 4, and expanded by Far Cry 5, you can play this with a friend if they have a copy of the game and complete the game as a team, but generally, this is played solo.
